Like many of the elite communities of Philadelphia's Main Line, Radnor is a picturesque enclave in Radnor Township, Pennsylvania in Delaware County. Part of Radnor is also in Tredyffrin Township, Pennsylvania in Chester County. The unincorporated community is adjacent to Villanova and St. Davids, and is served by the SEPTA R5 and 100 regional train lines.

Once a country retreat for Philadelphia's most prominent families, the community is rich with unique and striking architectural assets, including the estates of Woodcrest (now Cabrini College), Eltonwood (now part of Eastern University), Bolingbroke, Rock Rose, and The Woods.

Places of worship include St. David's Episcopal Church, whose graveyard, and buildings begun in 1715, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. [ [http://www.stdavidschurch.org/whoweare/index.php?arr1=0,11&itemid=11 St. David’s Church: Who We Are: History.] ] [Cite web
